A Week in Review

Brad is at the Sox game, the kids are having their afternoon relaxing time of a couple cartoons and so that means I get to nap read a book fold laundry blog.

The week started out with a Monday evening Railcats game along with Grandpa, Aunts, Uncles and cousins. The kids know exactly what baseball games are for -- food! Everyone had a lot of fun and the highlight was getting to give Rusty and Rascal (the Railcats mascot) a high five and doing the chicken dance. Except for I think the adults were the only ones actually doing it while the kids watched.

On Wednesday we spent the day at Pine Lake again with Grandpa, Aunts, Uncles and cousins. This time we were minus Dad but in addition we had the Michigan aunt, uncle and cousins.

We did some tubing.

Some eating.

Some boating.

And had some fun playing in the water.

Yesterday, Amanda went and got her first haircut that wasn't done by mom. We all headed over to Great Clips because I had a coupon. Of course, I forgot the coupon but talked the girl into giving me the coupon price because it was either that or she didn't get a tip because I only had so much money with me.

In other news, I think the pool might actually be up and running soon after having to purchase a few new parts and a broken filter pump. Then onto the fence, patio and deck. Hopefully we'll be finished by the end of the summer to enjoy it a couple times. And I just finished cleaning the camper. It only took me 2 months. Now I have a long list of things we need to shop for to fill the camper with.

amanda doesn't look so happy about her haircut! It looks really cute though!
What a fun week for the kids- and the adults!!! They might be a little bored next week without a baseball game and lake!

Tell Amanda the haircut is cute - she should smile about it! (Bad news is she looks more grown up.)

Amanda actually loves her hair but she had just woken up from a nap so she was still a little sleepy here. She does look older though doesn't she? I hated to have to do it but her hair is so uneven it needed to be done.
